Import ban

On 24 February 2022, the government of Canada amended Special Economic Measures (Ukraine) Regulations (SOR/2022-0028) to impose a complete import ban on the DNR and LNR regions of Ukraine in response to Russia's decision to recognize their sovereignty. 

As a result, any importation or acquisition of goods from the territories of the DNR or LNR provinces of Ukraine is a prohibited activity under the terms of the Special Economic Measures (Ukraine) Regulations. The regulation does not apply to the contracts that were concluded before the amendment entered into force. 

The import ban is introduced as a part of a broader dealings ban on the DNR and LNR regions alongside the restrictions on exports, investments, provision of financial services and technical assistance (see related interventions). 

The intention to impose the restrictive measures against the DNR and LNR was initially announced by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on 22 February 2022 as a part of a sanctions package against Russia and the separatist regions. This sanctions round includes the measures against Russian financial institutions and the central bank (see related state act). 

Making the aforementioned announcement, the Canadian Prime Minister stated: "These measures will apply further pressure on Russian leadership and extend greater support to our allies and partners. Canada will continue working with our allies and partners to impose additional hard-hitting economic measures that will inflict severe costs on Russia if it does not cease its unacceptable aggression against Ukraine. These actions demonstrate Canada’s steadfast support for Ukraine’s sovereignty".
